This study focuses on those elements that Navarre’s bishop Pedro Cirilo Uriz y Labayru used in the middle of the 19th century to take care of the diocese’s dreadful condition after a long period of conflicts. On the other hand, it provides information about his relationships with moderate and progressive national and local governments. Both circumstances lead Cirilo to reconsider the role of the Spanish and Lleida’s Church in the new historical context, where the loss of its common privileges and the impossibility to prevail by force were clear.
